Hello everyone! Mike here I am 28 and a health professional. Currently living with my parents. I have been planning to get my first property for a while but only changed my mindset towards savings and delayed gratification in last few months. I have some money invested in shares (ETFs) but not nearly enough for a deposit. I am also a bit of a gambler mainly sports. I like the excitement! but want to reduce that and focus on property. I am on average income so that doesn't help either. I am planning to buy my first property (/investment property) within a year. I would prefer to buy in Sydney or the Central Coast as I live and work in both locations. I believe the timing is not so good as it looks like the price is already at its peak therefore looking for other locations....and I am here to learn and seek advice from the experts!
